My daughter is a Facebook "addict", but not into Grateful Dead. I'll get her to "like" Hunter's Trix for me.

Cool. The female "Like" ratio is currently at 7.4%, so that definitely needs a boost. Thanks for asking.

7.4% -- I guess that's about right.
when we go to shows we always stop to get a good look at the crowd and try and figure out "the ratio". I tend to say it's 85/15, which is shortly followed by my husband telling me I am way off, even 90/10 is too high. so 7.4/92.6 it is. sounds about right.
which is why I ALWAYS tell any single woman friend who asks: If you want to meet guys, come to a show with us!

Interestingly, however, ages 13 to 17 is a 50/50 split. Looks like many more females will be joining the ranks in about 20 years.

that's wild -- but I've got the ancedotal evidence to back it up -- night 3 at the orpheum in boston, row 16, in the seats next to me are two girls who couldn't have been more than 19. I was so impressed. I love seeing the young'uns at shows!

I imagine more females are into the GD scene than the taper scene. I do know that more females flock to the Hunter's Trix taper scene, however. Statistics have verified this.

Why 20 years? Do Deadheads not emerge from incubation until at least age 33? Will something special happen on Phil's 91st birthday? :-)

On the guy-n-gal stats, here are some crowd pics from '82. Anyone interested could do a rough ratio. Or give it to their kids to do as a math assignment. No, wait, on the other hand ... maybe NOT something to show the kids ...!

Well, I was thinking about the Interesting Natl Geo shot, if you scroll down. Perhaps a bit too intriguing to teenagers! But ... why scary?

Yeah, I know. I think they're us. (Well, maybe not the woman at the bottom. Or if it is, we won't say :-) )
